Kitchener Selects Get Early Start On 2012

Friday, January 13, 2012

For the first time in their history, the Kitchener Selects are heading south of the border - very, very south. Though only five of the team's regular players are able to juggle the demands of work, school, and family to make the pilgrimmage to Lake Buena Vista, Florida (just southwest of Orlando), Selects' green will be making its inaugural appearance at the 2012 AAU Men's International Fastpitch Tournament, held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex from January 26-29.

Mike Brown, Glen Hall, Doug Hoffman, Kevin Ryrie, and Mike Welton will make the trip, with a roster rounded out with friends and fellow fastball junkies from the KFL, Golden Horseshoe Fastball League, and Tri-County Men's Fastball League. They open the 48-team tournament, which includes nine Canadian squads, against AOZ of Oklahoma on Thursday the 26th. The Selects then round out divisional play against the Lanzeros of Venezuela and Desert Kings of Mexico on Friday the 27th, at which point they'll be seeded for the elimination round.

Upon their return from Florida, the Selects will begin practicing in earnest for their upcoming season and their ongoing quest for the elusive KFL crown. Stay tuned for more!
